Is MvC2 still alive?

Seeing as how since the forum "overhaul" did away with 90% of useful info on the subject I figured I might as well ask here.

      So, is the Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 community still around? Meaning are there still tournaments and high level players still competing that haven't moved to UMvC3?
I know there's a rift in the community between these two games, but I just wanted to know if MvC2 was worth purchasing on PSN. I have the game for Dreamcast, but I have no idea if tournaments (if there are any) still use the DC with the PSN and XBL version out.

I'm fairly new to the FGC and I mostly just stick with AE and SFxT, but my best experiences with fighting games revolve around playing the MvC2 machine with my buddies when we were younger. I'd like to relive that in a small way by getting to know the community surrounding this game (again, if there even is one).

    In the mainstream way its as dead as can be. 

    There's a pretty solid online scene for the game. Offline is pretty scarce but if you wanna post with other people playing the game join the facebook group where mostly everyone left still posts http://www.facebook.com/groups/marvelvscapcom2/ josh360 still plays on PSN and Xecutioner got a dreamcast and is coming to Final Round where there will be an MvC2 side tourney and money matches in hotel rooms (since Shin Blanka said no MMs in the tournament hall)

    Thanks a lot for the info, man! 

    I'll brush up and just may show at Final Round XVI...

    Also, what console is preferable for tournament play? Do most people still just use the Dreamcast?

    There's a MvC2 subforum here you could check on this stuff in. :)

    general consensus seems to be DC>PSN>360. but 360 users will say differently lol. FR will have tournaments on all 3 consoles

    I somehow managed to find the subforum, lol: http://forums.shoryuken.com/categories/252


    Use the old numbers after "Marvel vs Capcom 2" in the old URL, and  use "http://forums.shoryuken.com/categories/" as template. Just change around the numbers. That's how I got to rediscover the non GD/non SF4/non MvC3 stuff that I used to browse. SFXT subforum messed up all the other FG's, what a surprise.

    Manila/Luzon in the Philippines still has an offline scene, but it's at L1 damage, which is different from the normal damage MvC2 of the States.

    IronMan infinite for God Tier. Storm standing Fierce's everything. Magneto players cry when multiple ROM loops barely do anything.
    For me, SF4 got fighting games backward - combos are supposed to be easy and reversals are supposed to be hard.

    If you're not playing around past 9PM EST, then that is true. Though that goes for pretty much any game

    Twas that sarcasm. Thing is - I was good... long time ago. Before PSN. Like, back in 2k6. I just stopped giving a shit about it. It's a dumb game, just too bad that I took 7 more years to accept that.

    No. I still play that. Super Turbo and 3S are really the only fighters I've been playing. I was playing GG and VF too, but those are more off and on spurts, and I'd play KoF more if the netcode was worth anything.

    Don't have the time for that. And that's not me playing it. That's my temporary roommate. I told him to not make another account on my PS3 because he's only staying with me through February. I don't touch that game. I refuse to.

    MvC2 tourney from the Philippines (last week). Again, Philippine MvC2 is on L1 damage, so it can seem like a completely different game at times.

    iirc...

    Waaay back in late 2000 or 2001, some players complained about Cable and other characters ending matches too quickly on normal damage. To appease them, most arcades set the damage to L1. It made matches go longer and characters live longer, but it totally changed the way the game was played here.

    There's still a few normal damage cabs but L1 became the competitive/MM/tourney standard because of years of use - Marvel 2.5, as Fchamp and Neo dubbed it during their visit here. lol
